Jim Theisen believes that people buy from people, not companies. That is why our company believes that we need to support the people and not-for-profit organizations in the communities that we serve.
Theisen's Home Farm Auto does that in many ways — through our MORE for Your Community Grant Program, scholarships, and donations to numerous organizations throughout the year.
Theisen’s More for Your Community Grant Program makes direct grants to agencies to jumpstart and/or sustain projects, which most effectively and directly serve the basic needs of families and children which include food, shelter, education, safety and health. Applicants must be a 501.C3 nonprofit, government-sponsored, or school-sponsored organization and be directly serving children and families within a 60-mile radius of a Theisen’s store.
Supported by Theisen’s Charitable Fund and through a partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, Theisen’s donates $350,000 annually. Each year, grant applications are accepted between July 15 and September 1, with award announcements in November.
Each year, Theisen’s Home Farm Auto offers scholarships to 4-H, FFA, Kirkwood Community College, and IFAA members to help fund their post-high school education. The application period varies by program but generally starts in early January.
